Was searching for more info on "The Big Picture (since skeleton has been added to comicbookdb) and wandered across Google Books version of "Encyclopedia of Comic Books and Graphic Novels by M. Keith Booker" and noticed on page 164

"EduComics, ... company founded by Leonard Rifas in 1976 ... published titles including ... Gen of Hiroshima ... The Big Picture: visualizing the global economy (a comic to support protests against the World Trade Organization.)
An unrelated "EduComics" company published one language-learning comic in 1982 and disappeared;
a third unrelated "EduComics" company operated for a while in Korea, creating web-based education comics on various subjects."
